I also think a guide on how to fill and drain a loop would be good

how to...

wire your printer up so the kids self destruct when they use all your ink printing daft drawings on MSPaint,

Get the other half to realise a cooked dinner would be nice when you get home after a 12 hour shift,

grow money trees so we can afford the latest gear for our loops,

cure cancer,

hack pro's post count and set it back to zero and lock it there.

sorry for thread hijack .. been one of those days.

move to off the wall maybe .. i got loads of these could start a whole new thread!

Ugh, it's annoying to try and learn aswell!

Hows about a how to prepare a case for powdercoating guide. Such as things to remove, things to cover up, how to make sure you don't get powder in the screw holes etc. I've been wondering about this for a while.

How to use sketchup, I had a go but was completely useless and the google tutorials show how to make chairs, I need to know how to get exact measurements.

Maybe not so much a how too but a do's and don't for total newbies like me, things like:
is it better to push air thru a rad or pull it, can pumps work equally well upside down as the right way, whats an 'ideal' loop config order, can you mix compression and barbs in a loop (thanks for davep for already answering this one for me :) )

i hunted thru the guides and they answered a lot of queries but some answeres remain elusive :)

I would appreciate this. The main concern I have about powder coating is not knowing what thickness the layer is, how uniform it is, and how I go about dealing with holes without simply drilling them out again afterwards.
